Today, we’re finishing up our winter concertina. This was a fun journey, with such beautiful layers.

I hope that you can tell your story in your concertina.  Bring to it the thing that has the most meaning in this winter season.

Remember that you have one more day to get the winter stencils at 15% off. Use code: winterfun23

The concertina with all the videos will also be available in the free Subscriber Library and the Membership along with the video of how I create the cover.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that you create your own. And always know that you are loved.

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
